Fashion. Turn to the Left. Fashion. Turn to the Right.


Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow

Tonight was the night of the Met Gala Event.  Because I’m not a fashionista I had to look up the reason for this red carpet.  According to Wikipedia, the gala’s purpose is to fundraise for the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute, which contains over 80,000 costumes and accessories.

Due to the fragile nature of the items in the collection, the Costume Institute does not maintain a permanent installation. Instead, every year it holds two separate shows in the Met’s galleries using costumes from its collection, with each show centering on a specific designer or theme.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the new exhibit, The Model as a Muse: Embodying Fashion, which “focuses on iconic models of the twentieth century and their roles in projecting, and sometimes inspiring the fashion of their respective eras.”

Well, it looked like the attendees had fun with the theme.  Some of the actors/singers/models/designers/socialites were innovative and stylish while some were just out of left field crazy or yawn worthy.  Below, my ever so astute and well thought out (read: first impressions) of the over 66 looks from tonight.

Yay:  Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Ashley Olsen, Bar Rafaeli, Gisele, Marion Cotillard, Kim Raver, Molly Sims, Liv Tyler, Anne Hathaway, Marisa Tomei, Chanel Iman, Iman, Jessica Alba, DVF, Claudia Schiffer, Carla Gugino.
